Beeswax Food Wrapper


NR_PlasticNR_PLASTIC_ENWith the impending ban of single use plastics by the federal government, and with all the information on their impact on our environment, many folks are looking for alternatives in their daily lives


We all can do small things that can create a big impact for our environment and one of them is to replace single use plastic by something that is not only practical, but beautiful as well!  The Beeswax wrappers can be used anywhere plastic wrap or baggies are used.  Wrap cheese, half a lemon, a crusty loaf of bread, or fruits and vegetables, cover a bowl, or pack a snack, and more.

What we like about Abeego Beeswax Wrappers:

  • made from materials you can feel good about: bee’s wax, jojoba oil, tree resin, and organic cotton.
  • It’s reusable. Once you’re done with your wrap, just wash it with gentle soap and cool water
  • Helps keep food fresh for a long time; anti-bacterial and antifungal.
  • Self-adhesive and air resistant. Only requires the warmth and pressure of your hands to mold and shape.
  • Abeego lasts a year or longer with good care.
  • A goodbye you feel good about! It’s biodegradable and compostable, or it can be used as fire starters for campfires, BBQs or wood stoves, cut into garden ties or let your imagination run wild.









Raclette Season

Fall is upon us with bright leaves and cooler days that call for warm meals filled with scrumptious flavours.  It is when we start planning meals with family and friends in the warmth of our home.  We are all busy and an easy option, a raclette, is a fun stress-free meal to share that can create memorable gatherings.  There is no cooking in advance – except to boil some potatoes – and the preparation is limited to chopping up a few vegetables and plating up the cheese.  What could be easier!

This Is One Great Garlic Crusher

The Garlic Rocker.  That is what this revolutionary new garlic tool made by Joseph Joseph is called.  I like cooking with garlic, and now, I like cooking with garlic even more!  It was love at first sight when Tim, our Danesco and Joseph Joseph rep. was showing us around his booth at last winter’s trade show.
